Made of P.E.T.bottles 
The yarn used is obtained from recycled PET bottles - no less than 48 PET bottles are needed to produce one kilogram of yarn. This is done by spinning granulate obtained from the bottles into polyester yarn. The production of the accessories thus not only saves crude oil, but also contributes to a reduction in plastic waste.

Design by Dr. Lourdes Grollimund
Dr. Lourdes Grollimund designed this piece. Lourdes researches the western tendencies, seasonal color styles and motifs in a benchmarking analysis. This results in irresistible, high quality accessories. The design is linked to “Mal de Ojo”, which is a South American popular belief of the "evil eye". Thus, "Mal de Ojo" means that people can be harmed by disapproving glances, or die or that their possessions could be damaged. Usually it is believed that an amulet should be worn in order to counteract the evil eye. Therefore, the eye on the clutch should protect its bearer from the envy of others.

Made in Venezuela
